Bio - I'm a guitarist, husband, dad (2 teenagers and 4 dogs) IT Geek and gamer - I work in IT and gig most weekends in a covers band.

I live in Scotland, grew up in Edinburgh and would love it if you said hi and where you are from too.

Thanks for checking my profile out - I'm interested to see how Mastodon fares after seeing many other social media platforms fail to knock over the big boys...it is time for a change though!

Have you heard of Sealand or HavenCo? Worth reading up on it. Interesting stuff. Seen it over the years but found an article from one of the founders of the CoLo concept they tried to float (sic)

Just as a heads-up, don’t use PMs/DMs on Mastodon, and if you have to never share any private information.

Admins of sending and receiving instances can read those, as there is no end-to-end encryption. Even if you trust the admins, instance ownership could change or hackers or government could get in.

Use different tools designed specifically for this.

Got my ATP cert the other day - love the new digital badges too.

"Hi Experts i am completely new to cisco servers, i have a requirement to give Read Access to one of my cisco stand alone servers, experts please guide me on this"

Post like this terrify me - they don't even know what they are asking and can't articulate it with any detail - why are they managing anything in IT!

I have a hundred questions already...but I just know it would be a challenge :p

Well that's my first ever post done - this feels just like it did on Twitter all those years ago (2009!) - wondering how to start :p

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
